Tonight, I found an untapped vain of freshly stocked deluxe Transformers Prime figures at...Walgreens.

Up front by the registers was a red cardboard corrigate Christmas shipper that had transformers in it. They had 1 deluxe Ratchet, 1 Vehicon, 2 Wheel Jacks, 1 Fruity Pebble Wheel Jack (Dead End) and 1 Airachnid! There may have been a few more but after I saw Airachnid, i stopped digging back. I know she has lame hands and well...is lame, but I wanted her to perhaps just keep in alt mode as a hanging piece in my display over my primes. The price was supposed to be 14.99 but they had them priced wrong at 10.49...and thats what I walked out with her for.

Happy Hunting!

Ah, that's the elusive wave 4 revision that we all wanted and eventually turned up at Aldi. It has
1 x Hot Shot
1 x Ratchet
1 x Knock Out
1 x Wheeljack
1 x Dead End
1 x Airachnid
2 x Vehicon
Nice to see it popping up elsewhere.

So while I worked the graveyard shift lastnight, I took total advantage of the situation this morning. I swung by the Mall of GA TRU and sure enough on the shelves & pegs were FOC Soundwave, Soundblaster, Ratbat/Frenzy, and Ravage/Rumble. I couldn't help myself and I also took advantage of their buy 1 get 40% off deal.

I grabbed 1 Ratbat/Frenzy, 1 Ravage/Rumble, 1 Soundwave, and 1 Soundblaster. I don't remember seeing any Dreadwings, but I remember seeing a lot of Starscreams, Ultra Magnus', and Thundertrons. It was very messy and unsorted at the time also. Good luck

I was at the Target right next to Perimeter Mall tonight and they had 3 Rumbles, 3 Knockouts, 2 Kups and 2 Vehicons. I was there right before close so these should all be there tomorrow. I'm going to check the Cumberland TRU tomorrow as well. I'll let you guys know if I find anything interesting!

I did the rounds in Buford today.
Ross and Marshall's: nothing notable. One or two RID Starscreams each, a couple old DOTM knicknacks, and I think I saw one RID Knock Out.
TRU near MOGA: Someone else got there RIGHT before me and snagged the last First Edition Bulkhead, as well as a FE Starscream. Was that any of you guys? Anyway, all that was left was a ton, and I mean a TON, of DOTM deluxes. They had filled up most of the pegs and were taking up the top shelf space, with at least 3 more cases on top of the shelf waiting to be put out. 8 Masterpiece Thundercrackers, a few Optimus Maximii, and maybe 2 representatives each of Generations FOC and Prime waves 1, plus a bunch of RID Starscreams. Oh, and those Bot Shots 5-packs. There was one new thing, though, and that was the FOC minibot two-packs. I saw both Frenzy/Ratbat and Rumble/Ravage in multiples. No FOC Voyagers, though.
Target: A few FOC Combaticons and a lot of Cyberverse and Bot Shots.
TJ Maxx: Same story as Ross and Marshall's. I noticed at these three locations a lot of M.A.R.S. sets I haven't seen at the bigger retailers, like the dinosaurs and the armor bots. Anybody know anything more about these? They're kinda nifty looking.
Wal Mart: Once again, nothing to see here.
I also stopped by the Lawrenceville Wal Mart on L'ville Suwannee west of I-85 because it's near my route, nothing there either.

At all locations, I found they were just about clean out of deluxes after Christmas, but had a bunch of Cyberverse and Bot Shots stuff, and the only voyagers to be found were Starscreams.

Wal Mart is heavily discounting most of their Prime stuff. I believe it was 50% off all Legions, Commanders, and Deluxes. Good time to snag that missing figure for your collection or build your Legion Vehicon army.

The other day, I picked up a Voyager Starscream for $13 after tax at the Ross by the Lawrenceville Target. The corresponding Marshall's had nothing new, although I saw a couple Generations Wheeljacks for $8 that I considered getting (ultimately passed). I might have the two stores backwards as far as what I found where, but it doesn't really matter, it's a five minute walk from one to the other.

I am currently missing only three figures from my complete Prime RID collection: Skyquake, Shadow Strike Bumblebee, and Rumble. Skyquake hasn't been spotted yet, Shadow Bee I'll get if I can find one at a TJ Rossall's, and Rumble I'll take at any price (well, $15 or less). PLEASE GIVE ME A HEADS-UP IF YOU FIND A RUMBLE IN THE GWINNETT COUNTY AREA. I'll head out to Pleasant Hill tomorrow to give that area a look, but it's generally not been very good for finds. Thank you, all.

I have some surprising news to share with you guys! I was at the TRU on Cobb Pkwy near Cumberland mall and I found 3 out of 4 of deluxe wave 1 of TFP Beast Hunters! They had Lazerback, Wheeljack and Soundwave. :grin:

They only had one of each and I nabbed the Lazerback but left the other two. I used my TRU rewards coupon for $5 off and got him for a little over $11. They also had the FOC data disks, two FE Bulkheads, and two FE Terrorcon Cliffjumpers. Needless to say, the Beast Hunters deluxes shocked me. I did not expect to see these on the east coast, let alone GA for at least another month. However, Beast Hunters are in GA! Happy hunting!

I'm seriously considering heading over there tomorrow to snag a Bulkhead, because I've been wanting one of those for a freaking year. I'll also look around for a Rumble.

Today I headed out to Pleasant Hill to check Toys R Us, Marshalls,TJ Maxx, and Target. I saw BH Soundwave at the TRU, and they also had the data discs, but nothing else notable at any location. Well, Target had a single Kup, but I've already got him. So yes, I can reaffirm with Rhinox that Beast Hunters has LANDED in Georgia. Let the hunt begin anew!

If you're coming to this side of town and don't find FE Bulkhead at the Cobb Pkwy location, the TRU in Kennesaw had 5-6 FE Bulkheads on Thursday.

Also, for anyone still looking for Vehicons, Aldi has marked all their toys 50% off, meaning you can get one for $4.99! I was just at the Aldi on Eagle Drive in Woodstock and they had 4 Vehicons, 2-3 of Wheeljack, Knockout, Ratchet and Airachnid, and 1 Hot Shot.

Not much to report out and about today. I did find 1 each of Voyager Dreadwing and FE Bulkhead @ MoGA TRU. Nothing much at TJ Maxx. Walmart and Target are starting their resets. Everywhere else is still pretty bare.

Was bored at lunch today so I went to...K-mart. Interesting enough, they have their Powerizer/Voyager Class on sale today for 16.29. I think the sale ends today though.

I checked TRU yesterday afternoon and Bulkhead was gone, still loads of DOTM, and as you said a bunch of RID Voyagers but only one Dreadwing. They did have 4 Soundwaves and a Soundblaster, though. My first time seeing them. After I got home I went online and bought a Rumble on eBay for marginally more than retail, including shipping, because I'm sick of empty store shelves or masses of Bumblebee. I thought about doing the same for FE Bulkhead but ultimately decided to hold onto a little cash until I get paid again.

Alright, I headed out to the TRU in Buford again today because it's their shipment day. And I got the JACKPOT!

I didn't think to count the BH figs but there was at least one of each, probably 2 of each (a full case). There was one each of the wave 5 FOC figs and an extra Magnus, 2 FE Bulkheads and a FE Prime. I snagged the following:

Also my Rumble arrived yesterday. Pretty cool little guy.

Got wuite the jackpot myself today. Picked up TFP FE Bulkhead, FOC Ultra Magnus, Starscream, Sideswipe, and Air Raid; TFP BH Soundwave and Laserbeak. Didn't think it was bad day at all.

Walmarts are now stocking the wave two of FOC. Picked Ultra Magnus today in Peachtree City. I left at least one of each on the peg.

Fayetteville TRU also had the FOC wave released but all that was left were Ultra magnus and a starscream. They had an FE bulkhead and also ALL of the Beast Hunters in stock.

I've actually seen all of the TFP Beast Hunters deluxes at my local TRU as well. This is a great sign for distribution of this line! Hopefully this holds true for Voyager wave 1 and deluxe wave 2 with Smokescreen. :PRAY:

I had terrible luck with waves 2 and on last year, and I'm not taking my chances with retail for wave 2 this year. I went ahead and ordered the full set of 4 from BBTS. I really only want Ripclaw and Smokescreen, but we'll see if I want to keep Starscream and Bulkhead or sell them. Smokescreen and Ripclaw's individual preorders were pre-sold out and price gouged up to about $21, while the set of 4 is only $60 plus shipping. At TRU's current $16 price, it works out to be only a few bucks more than retail with shipping included.

Nothing to mention while out today. TRU had the usual stuff: TONS of DOTM deluxes, a few TFP:BH deluxes. Target had the FOC Bruticus team and OP and Jazz. Walmarts were embarrassing to look at. I went to the one in Buford and in Hamilton Mill. Both were completely bare. They did their resets last week and have nothing to show for it except pegboard. Very disappointed in seeing this. Needless to say today was a day to burn some gas.

For my part, I stopped by the Lawrenceville Target between classes today. A couple wave 1 RIDs, a couple wave 1 FOCs, nothing much to speak of in boxes. Decent amount of Cyberverse. I went over to Marshall's and Ross while I was there. One of them had a Thundertron for only $13, so if you're looking for him, check that out. They also had the Bumblebee Battle Suit cyberverse set fo rthe same price. I don't believe there was anything else of note at either location. I'm still looking for a Shadow Strike Bumblebee for cheap to complete my Deluxes, so if anybody finds one, give me a heads up.

Good evening fellow Seibertronians! Sightings from out and about. TRU Mall of GA had deluxe FOC. I had them all except for Kickback, so I snagged the only one of him. For those of you looking for TFP Voyager Dreadwing and TFP deluxe shadow bumblebee they had 1 of each. Target had the same figures for the last few weeks. Walmart @ Mall of Ga and Hamilton Mill again this week had all empty pegs, not sure whats going on with that.
